Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: The Pigpen & Keith Keyboard Tandem

I personally feel that the Pig/Keith tandem era was probably the band's highest peak. Was there even one bad note played in Europe in 1972? I wish I could remember which one it was, but not long ago I had on one of those amazing Europe 72 Caution's, and the stuff Pig was doing on the organ was just excellent. It IS a shame he often got mixed so low. I've always wondered what probably my favorite Europe 72 show, 4/26, would have sounded like had Pig's organ actually been recorded.

If only that tandem could have explored the songs we know and love from 73 and beyond...
